Just Spin, Baby

Only in politics, I suppose, can you win by losing. And you probably thought that judging of Olympic figure skating was subjective.

Don't get me wrong - I'm for Obama, and I'm ready for this thing to be over. But if the best evidence of it being over is the sincerity of Bill's hug and the heartbroken look on Chelsea's face (according to David Gergen), then I'm prepared to wait a little longer for the votes to be tallied.

But the spin tonight was disastrous for Hillary, at least on MSNBC, where the dominant theme was that after tonight, her staying in the race can only be viewed as a desire to destroy Obama.

The beginning of the end?
